The Task System is a method of earning coins through performing tasks for NPCs, though the system may later be expanded to reward experience, favors, items, titles, Roleplaying Awards, or more. The system was released in July 2007, created largely by GameMaster Obseden.

The process is begun by ASK <person> FOR TASK. Depending on the person, you may receive a variety of tasks. You may choose to ACCEPT or DECLINE the task, but there is a waiting period before you can ask again.

Task Types

Boss

The task giver will name a boss-variant of some commonly hunted creature. For example, Ijna the wind hound. They will also tell you a hunting area. You need to go to that area and kill that sort of critter; eventually the boss will spawn, and you'll need to kill that to complete the task.

Crafting

Usually only given by special NPCs during festivals, this task involves making a certain number of crafted items. In return, the payment is in festival tickets, gems, coins, and possibly rare crafting materials.

The items in question must be of high quality and made by the person turning them in.

Delivery

This task involves taking an item from one person and delivering to another. The recipient may either be close by or in another province entirely.

If you're having trouble giving the item to the recipient, make sure you're using the syntax "give <item> to <person>".

Foraging

This task involves foraging up the requested item and delivering it back to the task giver. The items requested can be any of the items a player can forage within the game (see: Foraging Compendium).

Item Recovery

This task involves finding an item for the task giver. The task giver will name a location and a sort of creatures, and you must kill that creature at that location until eventually one of them drops the desired item as it dies.

If you're having trouble returning the item to the task giver, make sure you're using the syntax "give <item> to <person>".

Kill

The task giver gives a creature and a location, and a certain number which must be killed.

Once they are killed, return to the original task giver for reward.

Searching

This task involves finding an item for the task giver. This may involve going to a certain area, and KNEELing and then SEARCHing. Usually this version has an area in which it may be found, and it may take a great many searches to find. When you search, you should see you search for a bit, but do not find the item you are looking for. If you instead see you don't find anything of interest here, it means you're in the wrong area.

If you're having trouble returning the item to the task giver, make sure you're using the syntax "give <item> to <person>".

Skinning

The task giver will ask for a skin from a particular type of creature, which must be brought to them.
